WE Will Rock You musical is due to hit the York stage.

The musical will be performed at York Grand Opera House as part of its’ 20th anniversary UK tour from Monday, February 14 - Saturday, February 19.

The smash hit features 24 of Queen’s greatest hits, and has been watched by over 16 million people in 19 countries, after having first premiered in London at the Dominion Theatre in May 2002.

Ben Elton, the show’s original writer and stand up comedian, is back to direct the 2022 anniversary tour.

Ben Elton, the show’s original director said: “I can hardly believe it’s been 20 years since We Will Rock You premiered in London. Or that much of what we thought was science fiction in the script back then has turned into science fact! I guess Queen were always ahead of the game!

“I’ve directed this show all over the world and I can’t wait to bring it home to the UK with a brand new production and a fabulous cast of young Bohemians, most of whom were rocking in their cradles when this adventure first began.”

The cast includes Ian McIntosh, playing Galileo, Jenny O’Leary as Killer Queen, and Elena Skye as Scaramouche.
